RE-CREATION – MICROWAVE CABINET!

Everyone loves an efficient kitchen, but when a kitchen has efficiency and beauty it is almost magical!

This kitchen received a makeover that is modern and beautiful with many updates. Anyone would love it!

Additionally, the homeowners had a vision for a microwave cabinet that we were able to create for them bringing this kitchen to a new level.

We would love to help you turn your vision into a Re-Creation!

 

 

Simple RE-CREATION with MAXIMUM benefits!

HAVE YOU EVER OPENED A KITCHEN CABINET AND WONDERED WHAT WAS IN THE BACK OF THAT CABINET?

Well, worry no more! A Simple RE-CREATION with MAXIMUM benefits is closer than you may realize!  Our customers have re-created their cabinets by converting cabinets to pull out drawers giving them full access to the cabinet space.  Add to that slow close hinges and you have a newly RE-CREATED KITCHEN!

Island Too Small?

Do you have a kitchen island that is just too small?

Many homes built in the 90’s added islands to the kitchen, but often they are too small to be truly functional.  We can help you change that by building an extension or replacing the old with a newly designed island.  The photo above shows a kitchen update with the completed island extension.  Just think how much more functional this will be when the new countertop is installed!

Another great recreation for islands is to convert doors to pull-out drawers where cabinets once limited the full use of the space.

LIGHTING MATTERS!

Lighting can make a major difference, whether it be a selfie or in remodeling!
Just think of the options for LED lighting updates to your home: under-counter, under-counter with power strip, puck lights, mini cans, bar lights, in-cabinet lighting, cove lighting, toe or soffit lighting, display case lighting, recessed lighting, closet lighting, Niche lighting, over-the-sink lighting and the list and locations could go on and on!
We’ve been a part of updating some beautiful kitchens made even more beautiful by lighting and would love to help you love your home again!

5 RE-CREATIONS THAT MAY BE EASIESR AND CHEAPER THAN YOU THINK!

We love helping clients update their homes with cabinetry RE-CREATIONS, adding islands to kitchens and transforming older kitchens and bathrooms to bring them up to date and reflecting the homeowner today.

Each new year people take down holiday decorations and then look around at their homes and think of how they can update or change their home.  We look around and compare our home to those beautiful homes in magazines and on television.  But, could it be easier and cheaper than you may think?   Here are some ideas for ways that you can re-create your home in this new year.

#1 – Clean up cluttered spaces

This seems so simple (hopefully not insulting).  All of us come out of the holidays with wrapping paper, gift card packaging and little things we may want to hold onto just a little longer.  Get busy cleaning up spaces that have become cluttered over time, or over the holidays.  You may be surprised at how much more you like your home when it’s de-cluttered!

#2 – Do a deep clean of walls and flooring

It’s absolutely amazing what a difference clean walls and floors will make.  Yes, walls get dusty just like everything else.  Lean in close to your bathroom or bedroom wall.  You may be surprised at how much dust you see.  This is a quick easy fix with a microfiber cloth.

Clean your floors giving extra attention to corners and moldings.  Vacuum all corners and up close to all moldings.  I think we’ve all seen carpets with a dull greyish edge along the molding – there’s your dust!

And don’t miss the back of furniture, especially bed frames.  If there is a flat surface to be found, dust will find it!  You may even find what you liked least about your home was the musty smell!

#3 – Reassign your accessories (and don’t overlook your pictures)

This one amazes me!  Bring all your accessories to a dining room table or staging area.  Don’t overlook bedroom and bathroom accessories.  Then go for a walk.  Give it an hour or two and then go walk around your home and take a good look at the bare spaces.  Go back to your staging area and re-imagine where the accessories may look good.   If you loved a candle or flower vase in your bedroom, try them in your den or the living area where you spend the most time.  Don’t allow yourself to go back to what is most familiar.  Mix and match your accessories to create small vignettes that are interesting and nice to look at.

Reassigning your pictures is important as well.  Put those pictures that most inspire you in places where you need to be inspired.  We all need a little inspiration every day!

#4 – Add fresh-cut flowers or new candles to the places where you spend the most time.

Don’t underestimate the power of smell!  Science has proven that certain smells affect us differently.  Look online for lots of information on this, but to get you started here are a few ideas for some candle scents.

Lemon or Jasmine for calming

Orange for reducing anxiety

Lavander to reduce tension

Cinnamon and/or vanilla for creativity

#5 – Touch up or repair what can be touched up or repaired

If you have small areas of furniture, molding, curtains, etc. that can be touched up or repaired quickly and inexpensively, do it!  It will make a difference quickly.  Stop putting off those long-needed repairs.

Lastly….

After doing some of the things above, live with your home a few days all the while really looking around at what works and what doesn’t work so efficiently.  Then think about what you would like if you could RE-CREATE your kitchen cabinetry, your bathroom cabinetry or other cabinetry in your home.  If an island would much improve your kitchen, give us a call.  If a small drawer change to new boxes with slow close hinges would make a big difference to you, call us.  If you want a new re-creation this year, call us.

We would love to help you RE-CREATE your CABINETRY!

 

Can you imagine a bath Re-Creation like this in copper?!!!!

One of my favorite booths at last year’s Kitchen and Bath Industry show (KBIS – https://www.kbis.com/) was Thomas Traders (http://thompsontraders.com/).  I couldn’t wait to find them again this year to see some of their amazing new designs, and they did not disappoint!

How would you like a bathroom re-creation with a new copper soaking tub, sink and lighting – all copper?  It was beautiful – a real show stopper!

RE-CREATE WITH NEW DOORS!

Some RE-CREATIONS take more than a finish change.  Some just need new doors to update from builder grade 1980ish cabinets to a look for now, today and current!  These photos below are a great example of before and after Re-Creation with new doors!

Many of us remember doors like in the first photo – and we loved them when we first moved in.  But, look at the change with new cabinet doors on existing cabinet boxes.

This stove side view really shows the change to reveal a more modern and sophisticated kitchen.

We can help you RE-CREATE your kitchen with new doors!  Call us today to find out how our Cabinetry Re-Creations can be the first step in loving your home again!

 

Inner Beauty from Cabinetry Re-Creations

INNER BEAUTY

When thinking of Cabinetry Re-Creations we usually think of redesigning cabinetry with a more current update of style and color.  If often includes re-facing and adding islands or more cabinetry.   But, have you considered that cabinetry beauty begins within those cabinet doors?

One of our increasingly popular re-creations is converting cabinetry to pull-out cabinetry.  Some of the reasons that customers are choosing pull-out instead of traditional cabinetry include:

  • Gives you fully functional cabinets allowing you to get all the way to the back of your cabinet
  • Ease of use for those with age limitations or for others who face a disability
  • Provides opportunity to maintain a more orderly and potentially organized cabinet
  • And who doesn’t love a slow close drawer whether an actual drawer or pullout

Below are some examples of a home we recently updated with pull-outs where cabinets once existed.

This is true INNER BEAUTY!

Nice to REALLY NICE!

I really love what a color change can do to a kitchen or bath.  Our N-Hance group can help you update your home from nice to REALLY NICE with a factory-finish color update to your home.
